Horry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) is proud to announce the 13th annual Addiction and Recovery Series schedule for 2020.

The HGTC Addiction and Recovery Series was created in 2008 by HGTC physics and natural science professor Casey King to: increase public awareness of recovery in our community, educate the public on the biology and psychological basis that drives many addictions, demonstrate that addiction crosses all social and economic boundaries, reduce the stigma our culture assigns to those in recovery and to demonstrate that recovery from addictions is possible through a multitude of methods and can be free to those who want it.
The series is presented by Horry-Georgetown Technical College and sponsored by Grand Strand Health, Faces and Voices of Recovery Grand Strand, Lighthouse Behavioral Health Hospital, and Shoreline Behavioral Health Services.
